Specialities on the Royal Island Maldives
How about a beach dinner barbeque for two at your villa? A table set with a white tablecloth, flowers, candles and Champagne. The Chef and staff prepare your meal at the table as you sit bathed in the moonlight with candles flickering in the gentle breeze and the sand still warm from the day’s sun.
The Spa Centre is a delight and comes highly recommended. Virtually a resort within a resort you enter a beautiful Indonesian designed Spa of thatch and bamboo. Lush leafy plants and fountains give an atmosphere of relaxed tranquillity.
The body treatments available are superb and well worth investigating. From the traditional full body massage and couples' massages to the Sirodhara herbal oil treatment and the more familiar head, neck and shoulder massage...
